Hussain Haqqani, director of Boston University's Center for International Relations, was an advisor to former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. He talks about her assassination and how her death impacts U.S.-Pakistan relations. He says the U.S. created circumstances for such a tragedy as Bhutto's death by not pressuring President Pervez Musharraf to provide security for her.

Hussain Haqqani speaks with Steve Inskeep.
